Holiday Gift Guide #2: For Her

Holiday Gift Guide: For Her.png

The Styled Collection Brinkley Cuff / The Styled Collection Georgina Bangle – David Yurman dupes! These were on my list this year.

Fleece Pullover – The fleece pullover everyone seems to love!

Kendra Scott Pendant – This seems to be an accessory staple for a lot of ladies – There are a lot of stone options too!

Ugg Slippers – These also seem to be something that everyone loves – comfortable, durable and water resistant!

BP. Beanie – Looks a lot more expensive than it is! Only $20!

Clarisonic Mia Smart x Kiehl’s Holiday Set – This was also on my list this year – Clarisonic’s can definitely be an investment but this is marked down and comes with product samples sizes! Tati Westbrook talks about this a lot on her channel and she is the reason I want it so badly!

Tarte Tartelette Flirt Palette – The perfect small palette with everyday eye colors.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo Set – I got a sample of this dry shampoo and I love it as much as I love my batiste!

Holiday Gift Guide #1: For Him

holiday-gift-guide-for-him2

Barbour Jacket / Airpod Bluetooth Headphones / Daniel Wellington Watch Gift Set / Allbirds / Ugg Slippers / Lulu Lemon ABC Pant / Birddog Shorts / Patagonia Vest

Shopping for your man can be difficult especially if you have been together for a few years – you run out of ideas and don’t want to be repetitive! I always look to friends and family for ideas, and I have never done a gift guide “for him” so I thought I’d do one this year for all of my girls out there that need gift ideas! The items I included in this gift guide are all things that the men in my family love / my boyfriend loves and are really “in” right now! They all are a little on the pricier side but they are all great quality and are great if you are looking to buy one big gift.

The perfect $40 jacket for fall days + nights out

IMG_9571IMG_9573IMG_9574IMG_9572IMG_9579IMG_9576IMG_9575IMG_9580IMG_9578Jacket / Jeans (On sale!!) / Cami / Heels (Similar) / Necklace

I am LOVING Target’s new fall selection (but really when am I not loving anything from Target)…They really are killing it right now. They are coming out with more and more designer dupes that are so affordable.

I love this jacket because it works during the day and you can also wear it out at night. It’s super easy to dress up or down, and it looks designer but its only $40! It comes in a few other colors too 🙂 Also, my jeans are currently on sale for $21.99 and originally are $88! They are by far the comfiest jeans I own.

Transitioning my favorite summer staples into fall

Green1Green3Green4Green5Green6Green7Green8Blouse / Jeans / Wedges / Watch / Necklace

It is finally starting to cool down and feel like fall – I am so happy I get to transition into wearing my fall outfits again!! I personally love wearing white jeans in the fall and up until winter – especially in this weird transition period where it hasn’t completely cooled down yet and some days are warmer than others. It is so easy to take some of your favorite summer pieces and transition them into fall outfits just by pairing them with the right fall colors. This top is from Target and is only $22 and also comes in a rust orange color! And these wedges..are just another Target must have. They aren’t too high and are designer dupes!

express

Express is the perfect place to buy your “going out” closet staples. The entire site is currently 40% off and womens jeans are 50% off! 

One Shoulder Tie Tank – Only $15!!

Sequin Mini Skirt – $41. I wore this last weekend to celebrate my 22nd birthday and I loved it. Just the right amount of extra 😉 

Strapless Sweetheart Romper – $41. I love this because it’s simple – but you can do a lot with it! PicMonkey Image-6

It was not until recently that I started shopping at Abercrombie again, they have so many cute fall items right now and their sales are great! 

Snap-Up Fleece – I am obsessed. Comes in many different colors! 

Cozy Swing Dress – This also comes in different colors and I think it’s perfect for fall! 

Lace Trim Cami – These are SUPER in right now. The reason I like mine so much is because you can wear it under a lot of different cardigans and blazers, or by itself!

Goodnight Macaroon is the perfect place to get sweaters and cardigans. They have so many unique styles that you might not see a lot of other places. It has been one of my favorites for a while now. 

“Silvia” Eyelet Halter Neck Lightweight Sweater / “Pansy” Two Tone High Low V-Neck Sweater / “Acadia” Fuzzy Fleece Sweater

Beauty favorites I’m loving this summer (all under $15!)

BeautyProductsPost.jpgPicMonkey Image

Throughout the summer I’ve come across some really affordable beauty products that have become a part of my daily routine so I figured I’d share them with you guys 🙂 A lot of these are dupes for higher-end products that I just can’t justify spending so much money on, and why should you when you can find them at the drugstore for a fraction of the price?!

  1. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer – This bronzer not only smells like coconuts and vacation but it gives you the most natural glow that blends so nicely! This is one of the many products I have purchased because it is Tati-approved (if you haven’t watched her on YouTube, click that link right now!)
  2. Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation – I picked up this one up because it was oil-free, which is really important for my skin especially in the summertime. I notice that this foundation is definitely full coverage but very natural looking at the same time! I like that I can’t feel it on my face. It doesn’t clog my pores or break me out either.
  3. Maybelline Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter – I have this highlighter in rose gold and it is by far the best drugstore highlighter I have ever tried – it is so smooth, not chunky/chalky at all and gives such a nice highlighted glow to the skin!
  4. Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil – This may seem like a random item but it has been a game changer for my skin (I do not apply it on my face.) I apply it every night after I shower and shave, and it makes my skin so soft and I have noticed that my skin tone is more even and any scarring from shaving seems to have lightened. I have always loved Palmers Cocoa Butter Cream so I knew I would love this too.
  5. L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze it Bronzer – This bronzer is great for your face and your body. I use this mostly when I have applied self-tanner and I need my face to blend with my neck and chest. It gives a really nice natural looking glow without looking “too bronzed!”
  6. Trader Joe’s 100% Pure Jojoba Oil – This oil is a more recent find and I did not know how my skin would react to it because it is so sensitive and oily already. I am struggling with acne and breakouts and am trying anything at this point. I have been using this for almost two weeks now and my skin feels so hydrated and smooth. Jojoba oil is known to soothe and cleanse pores but I didn’t know if it would do that for me! So far I am loving it.
  7. Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick – I love this because it feels like a chapstick but gives you color as well! These smell so good too.
  8. Maybelline The City Mini Palette – I LOVE this palette. I got the “Rooftop Bronzes” palette and it is the only palette I’ve used daily since I purchased it. These shadows are dupes for some shades in the Naked Palettes – and only a fraction of the price!
  9. Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss – I was looking for a dupe to the Buxom plumping gloss (which I love) and the woman in the Target Beauty section recommended this one to me. It works just the same! It gives a nice shine and the tingle makes your lips feel fuller!

What are some of your current drugstore favorites that you think I should try?!

Chicago Botanic Garden + styling my favorite tank from the #NSALE

Edit34567IMG_7783.JPG8

Lace-up Tank / High Waisted Shorts / Sandals

I can’t believe that I have been living in Illinois for almost 5 years now and I hadn’t gone to the Chicago Botanic Gardens until now..They are seriously so beautiful. These photos do not even do it justice.  There is also a super cute café and gift shop!

My favorite tank from the Nordstrom sale is restocked in limited sizes and in some colors so grab it while you can! Also, my shorts are on clearance at Target right now for $11! My slides are also from Target and I have literally been living in them. This was such an easy outfit to throw on. I want this tank in other colors!
